Inveruglas Isle

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Inveruglas Isle.jpg

Inveruglas Isle (Scottish Gaelic: "Innis Inbhir Dhughlais") is a small uninhabited[1] island within Loch Lomond, and lies off the shore at Inveruglas opposite Inversnaid at the north end of the loch. It is opposite the Loch Sloy powerstation.[2]

The name Inbhir Dhu(bh)ghlais means "mouth of the black stream"; Inveruglas Isle is therefore, quite literally, the island at the mouth of the black stream.

The island houses the ruins of a castle which was once home to the chiefs of the Clan MacFarlane, destroyed in the seventeenth century by Oliver Cromwell's Roundhead troops.[2][1]
